Governor, statewide leaders: Swift action on Good Jobs for Michigan legislation essential for state to compete, attract good-paying jobs

Michigan needs a more competitive tool now to grow more good-paying jobs statewide and to take advantage of a surge of new investments coming back to the United States, say Gov. Rick Snyder and a diverse coalition of community, business and labor leaders and economic development experts today.

During the Detroit Regional Chamber’s annual Mackinac Policy Conference, the governor and members of the Good Jobs for Michigan Coalition will urge support and swift action on Senate Bills 242, 243 and 244. The legislation would use a transparent, performance based incentive to fill a critical gap in Michigan’s business attraction toolkit and enable the Great Lakes State to compete on a national level for large, game-changing projects that will create hundreds of new and good-paying jobs each.

The legislative package, sponsored by Sens. Jim Stamas, Wayne Schmidt and Steven Bieda, passed the Senate with strong bipartisan support in late March. It’s awaiting action in the Michigan House.
